Dr Chez Leggatt-Cook has worked as a researcher in both Australia and New Zealand, across diverse areas including domestic and family violence, child protection, elder abuse, disability and homelessness. In her current role as Principal Advisor Research and Evaluation at UnitingCare, Chez aims to build and apply evidence that empowers practitioners in their work with individuals, families and communities. Chez’s passion for co-design and knowledge translation is evident in this podcast about the evaluation of her organisation’s approach to “working with men”.
In each episode of The Bulb, the podcast will explore aspects of gendered violence – what is thought about it, what we know about it, and what is yet to be revealed.
The QCDFVR is funded by The Queensland Government and is based at CQUniversity Australia.
